- As noted, this week's WWE 205 Live main event saw Oney Lorcan's team win a ten-man Captain's Choice Elimination Match. Lorcan, Akira Tozawa, Jack Gallagher, Humberto Carrillo and WWE NXT Superstar Isaiah Scott defeated WWE Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak, Tony Nese, Mike Kanellis, Ariya Daivari and Angel Garza.
Above is video of Cathy Kelley talking to "Swerve" Scott after the match. She asked if we can expect to see more of him on 205 Live.
"You know, Swerve never gets tired of being in this atmosphere," he said. "This 205 Live locker room is incredible, the best talent in the world. Swerve deserves to be a part of that. So, me personally, I would love, love, to be here permanently. 205 Live... Swerve's House? Has a ring to it, don't it? So, yeah, let's listen to the WWE Universe on that one."
